Reporting for Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) - the easy way

Reporting for the purposes of a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) can be a tedious, time-consuming, but essential task for skip hire companies working with customers in the construction business.

My Yard tackles the problem of getting accurate and timely SWMP reporting data through:

  •  Automatic application of best practice guidance from the Environment Agency to calculations of skip contents
  • Multiple methods for entering data, including a mobile app so that operators in the yard can enter information directly into the system as waste arrives on site

  • Operators can grant customers direct, secure online access to their own reports

Skip over to the Internet to make waste management easier

Competition in the skip hire and waste management industry has never been fiercer. Customers are demanding lower rates while margins are under pressure from rising fuel and landfill tax costs. Additionally, increasing paperwork and customer demands are diverting precious time from the core business of removing waste.

In these tough industry conditions, savvy waste management companies are using the Internet to do more with less and offer value added services to win new business while keeping existing customers happy.
